Is it impossible to live in White Plains without a parking spot? Apparently you can't park on the street overnight so without a space are you screwed? Most of the apartments I've been looking at may only have 1 or 2 spaces but we need 3.

Are you trying to save some bucks and looking for ways to do without a permit at one of those public lots? Unless you are able to find a street tucked a way in a neighborhood where they don't enforce that rule, and you can tolerate shuttling back and forth, I think you need to get a permit.

Is there availability in the lots and how how much does a parking space typically cost on a monthly basis? A realtor told me that the lots are full but I think she might have been wanting me to lease a place she showed me in sleepy hollow.

When I lived in WP, I had two cars and one spot. I used to pay for a spot at the White Plains Mall, where the DMV is. It's been years ago but I think I paid something like $125/mo. The Wal-mart parking lot is a private lot, but it's shared with Wal-mart and two office buildings. They do offer private parking - I had my second vehicle parked there up until a few years ago. It was $100/mo, if you pay quarterly, or $125/mo, monthly. No contract. They're owned by LAZ parking. Their policies may have changed, but it's worth a shot.

Parking on the street it sketchy, overnight. Even in some neighborhoods that don't have nightly patrols, they'll still will eventually ticket you. Silliest law I've ever seen, can't park on the street, even in front of your own home, between 2a and 6a.

If you are planning to live in downtown WP or near by, you should consider keeping only two cars. It won't be a burden, area is very walk-able and has all you need. Otherwise, you can park at city center for around $100 per month or maybe consider living away from the center where you may be able to find a small house or a multifamily house where they may let you have 3 cars. Some churches rent parking spaces too at around the same price as city center. You should not leave your car on the street overnight because they will eventually ticket you and those tickets are not fun. Once they ticket you they will come back and do it again and again till eventually they will just put a boot on your car. Not worth the trouble.

Hope this helps
